One to watch – Criminal background check appeal heard by the OCA

The Ontario Court of Appeal issued reasons today for orally dismissing an application brought by Canadian Civil Liberties Association to intervene in the appeal of Tadros v. Peel Regional Police Services. This is a case from last October in which the Ontario Superior Court of Justice held that a police service unlawfully disclosed information about an individual’s withdrawn criminal charges in the course of conducting background checks (see “Breadth of disclosure in criminal background checks unlawful” here). The Court of Appeal’s procedural decision indicates that the merits of the appeal were to be heard yesterday and the day before.
